Mimi Botscheller is an artist and educator who has resided and worked in Broward County since 1973. Her paintings combining Eastern and Western ideologies and multiple points of view have been widely shown, both nationally and internationally.  The work has regionally been featured in numerous gallery exhibitions and museum competitions from Miami to Palm Beach.  

Ms. Botscheller has also worked in Public Art as a recipient of the Duane Hanson Allied Artist to assist in the Pompano Beach Streetscape project.  Her commissioned installation located in Terminal 19 in Port Everglades, Ft. Lauderdale has been incorporated into the redesign of the terminal.  Other notable achievements include winning the South Florida Cultural Consortium Fellowship, being selected as a semi-finalist for the airport video installation project.  She currently has an installation of paintings, digital work and sculpture in the Surrealism Room of the Young at Art Museum in Davie, Florida.

 In 2003 Mimi was awarded a full tuition scholarship and in 2004 received an MFA in Visual Arts from Miami International University of Art and Design.  She returned to MIU in 2010 to pursue 21 masters credits in Graphic Design with a concentration in digital and motion art. Those studies were completed in June 2011. 

Recognition for her digital photography, motion art and hybrid media collage work has been developing.  Mimi’s Photoshop narratives have been purchased by photography collector Robert Lewis (Denver, CO) and the Biba Gallery in Palm Beach.  Prints from her new body of work were selected for exhibition in SoHo Photo Gallery, NYC in the Professional Woman's Photography show Contrasts.  In addition to her her digital work Mimi’s motion experiment The Reinventor,  was selected as a semi-finalist in the category; Innovation in Motion and Video in Education for the 2011 Adobe Design Achievement Awards.   

Ms. Botscheller retired from teaching in 2013 to work as a full time artist and art advisor.
